Agreements

Legal and judicial agreements with other countries 

Ever since the government of Prudence and Hope [led by President Hassan Rouhani] took office in 2013, the Justice Ministry has clinched 21 deals – including 10 agreements on the transfer of sentenced persons, seven on judicial assistance and four on extradition of criminals – with other countries.
In line with the first group of these agreements, since March 2013, 426 Iranian nationals serving time overseas have been brought home and 61 foreign nationals sentenced to jail terms [by Iranian courts] have been sent to their countries of origin. An additional 253 foreign nationals were expected to be repatriated by September 2016 to serve the rest of their jail terms in their respective countries.
